Novethix™ L-10 emulsion polymer

INCI Name: Acrylates/Beheneth-25 methacrylate copolymer

Novethix™ L-10 polymer is a highly efficient, hydrophobically-modified alkali-swellable emulsion polymer designed for structuring most cleansing formulations containing anionic, nonionic, and zwitterionic surfactants. Novethix™ L-10 polymer works synergistically with electrolytes and is an easy-to-use, cold-processable liquid. 


  • Cold-processable, requires no heat and short mixing time
  • Easy-to-use liquid form
  • Excellent thickener and provides enhanced clarity for low surfactant level formulations
  • High oil-loaded body wash emulsions
  • Low surfactant clear or pearlized bath gels, body washes and shampoos
  • Mild, sulfate/amide-free shower gels, shampoos and facial cleansers
  • Smooth, honey-like flow rheology
  • Synergistic thickening with salt


  • Mild Cleansers
  • Styling Products
